This Cinnasational Spice Blend is an all purpose baking blend that can be added to any baked good! Cinnamon is the star of the show but nutmeg, allspice and cloves pack their own punch creating a well rounded spice mix. From cinnamon rolls to cobbler, this blend is the perfect addition to any and every baking recipe!
A few of my favorite ways to use the Cinnasational Spice Blend: • Swap out the cinnamon for this blend in your next batch snickerdoodles
• Spice up your favorite banana bread by adding 1 ½ teaspoons to recipe
• Add a couple of teaspoons to your next summer crisp or cobbler
Tips: Whisk this blend in with the flour and other dry ingredients when adding it to a recipe so it is evenly distributed.
To make a spiced simple syrup, mix it in with the sugar before adding the water so it does not separate.
